Mata urges United to focus on strong finish after West Brom defeat

Paul Pogba

Manchester United handed the Premier League title to Manchester City on Sunday after a woeful performance in a surprise 1-0 defeat at home by bottom club West Bromwich Albion.

That, combined with City's win over Tottenham on Saturday, means Pep Guardiola's team is officially Premier League champions for the 2017-18 season.

In Moore's two matches in charge of West Brom, the Midlands side have picked up four points - as many as they achieved in their previous 11 Premier League matches in 2018, a dismal run which led to the sacking of Alan Pardew.

He won three league titles with Barcelona and twice lifted the Champions League trophy during his Camp Nou reign.

In his post-match press conference, Mourinho made reference to the eight titles he has won in his managerial career and why this was a reason behind why he did not "feel super happy" when his side defeated City last weekend. I know how to win.

Mourinho said he could see the weakness of his players mentally all week throughout training and tried to prevent it, but clearly couldn't.

At Old Trafford, the players were equally impressive with just one-third of the possession, and the late Jay Rodriguez goal has ensured that they are still mathematically in the running to save their Premier League status.

A week after City surrendered a 2-0 lead to lose 3-2 to United and squander the chance to wrap up the title in ideal style against their arch-rivals, it was relegation-bound West Brom who served it up on a plate.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has urged his players to be more consistent next season if they are to challenge Manchester City for the title next season.

Mourinho himself noted his team tried to be too fancy, telling Sky Sports, "I think we were deservedly punished because we were masters in complication".

And though Foster won't be at the World Cup in June, he could yet be in the Premier League with a new club next season.

"We didn't play simple, everything was slow, one more flick, trick, turn".

But his best moment of the match came to stop Lukaku from opening the scoring after an hour, getting down low to push Lukaku's header wide of the goal and keep his side in the match.

In addition, based on three points for a win, City's now tally is the most by any side after 33 games of an English top-flight campaign.
